The right hair crimper can do a lot more than just help you nail an '80s dance night hairdo. With the best hair crimpers, you can create cool, modern looks that won't damage your hair or cost you a fortune.
Although they may be most often associated with the 1980s, crimpers have been making a comeback for few years. From the runway to IRL, creative beauties are finding ways to make crimped hair feel modern, edgy, and — dare I say — even sophisticated. Whether you want to add texture to a sleek high pony tail or you want to go wild with carefree zig-zag waves, a crimper can create a variety of styles. Or hey, if you're not ready to go full-on Lizzie McGuire quite yet, you can simply use a crimper to give your roots extra volume.
When looking for hair crimpers, remember that different sized plates will create different looks; choose a smaller plate for a more textured-look and a wider plate if you want more definition. As with all hot tools, it's also important to choose quality materials, like ceramic or tourmaline, that can help reduce heat damage and leave your hair looking and feeling smooth and shiny.
